Entertaining, Great singing, Slow

See it if you want to spend an evening listening to all the biggest hits of the Four Seasons amidst a very detailed biographical narrative.

Don't see it if you don’t want to watch an- at times- overly detailed biopic of the Four Seasons, in which they play all the big hits but not always in full

Sharp, Fantastic cast, Nostalgia, High energy buzzing atmosphere, Entertaining

See it if Four blue collar boys from New Jersey become a music phenomenon along with the changing dynamics/relationships in the group.

Don't see it if you don’t like the Four Seasons music/Juke box musicals.

Jukebox musical that works

See it if you enjoy Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons songs - although, I didn't realize some of these songs are from them.

Don't see it if you have never heard any of their songs. Read more

Intense, Great singing

See it if You want a good story with some good music. Really enjoyable show with a different way of story telling. Good night out, enjoyable

Don't see it if This show attracts audiences who want to sing along, so some bad audience behaviours is sadly expected.

The Times (UK)

Consolation comes in watching the newcomer Ben Joyce — who only graduated from drama school this year — make such a fine job of the Valli vocals.

Not hard to see why this ran over 11 years on Broadway then immediately transferred to a smaller Off-Broadway house, "Oh What A Night" indeed.

The Telegraph (UK)

Rather, Jersey Boys embodies the qualities of the band itself: unpretentious, uncomplicated, a bit cheesy and, with its by-numbers rags to riches narrative, steeped in the comforting mythology of the American dream.

The Stage (UK)

Jersey Boys may have seemed like a reliably safe choice for the handsomely refurbished Trafalgar Theatre. But this production stretches out like an over-earnest tribute act that has been asked to fill an extra hour on stage.

Jersey Boys is a musical that efficiently delivers a cracking story and a seemingly endless catalogue of hit songs.
